It is a privilege to welcome actor Brad James to The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast. 

 In just a few years, Brad James has transformed from a US Marine to a dynamic force in television and film. He has starred in films such as Parental Guidance, The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghost of Georgia, Prisoners, and Dashing Through the Snow.   Brad developed a following thanks to his starring roles in Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse (Todd), Superstition (Calvin Hastings), A House Divided (Cameron Sanders, Jr.), and Outer Banks (Agent Bratcher).   

Brad is starring as Black Panther Party co-founder Huey Newton in the Netflix biopic Shirley. Shirley follows Shirley Chisholm (played by Emmy and Oscar-winning actress Regina King), the first Black woman elected to Congress, as she makes a historical trailblazing run for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination. The film also stars Lance Reddick, Terrence Howard, Lucas Hedges, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Amirah Vann. It was written and directed by John Ridley.   

Beyond acting, Brad is making waves as a writer, producer, and director, bringing entertaining and enlightening stories to life. His commitment to inspiring youth extends to speaking engagements at drama academies, schools, and panels, promoting the belief that anyone can achieve their dreams.   

In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast, Brad James spoke about the similarities and differences between Todd and Cameron Sanders, Jr. He also shared his research to portray Huey Newton in Shirley.
